My Plants, a List

This plant list is a work in progress...hopefully I'll have it somewhat comprehensive soon! In the meantime feel free to comment with any questions you have about the plants, where I got them, whatever...and if you see something I've misspelled please let me know...

(updated 6/27/2014, if the name is bold and italicized it means that plant was severely damaged from December 2013's cold temperatures, I'm not yet declaring it dead but it's not looking good)

  1. I am blown away by your FOCUS. We just finished reading the Steve Jobs book by Walter Isaacson, and that was his (Jobs') main key to success in anything.

  2. This is great! And holy moly you have a lot of agaves!

    I keep a plant list on an Excel doc. Along with the genus, species and cultivar, I keep other info I need to remember in the various columns, like where I acquired it and when, or any special care notes. It has been invaluable when my brain fails - as it does on a regular basis!

  3. I would love to see/hear about your Sansevierias! I thought to check here for them based on your comment on this page: http://www.stupidgardenplants.com/archives/unidentified-cactus-still-plant-hoarding-even-in-the-winter#comments.

    Great blog, keep it up:)

    1. I wish I new what they were and I would share the info! I only have three, none of which I have tags for. Two were bought as "houseplants" at the big box (the one in the comment you mention) and the third probably had a tag at some point but that was a long long time (and several moves) ago. Sorry!

  4. I finally did a census of cacti and succulents and I am at 287! A species list is forthcoming this winter ...

  5. Hi, New to your site - and also to pointy sharp daggery plants!! Which I now lOVE!!

    1. Wouldn't that be fabulous? I'll get my assistant on that asap! (that will be a great project if we have a rainy spring)

  6. You really ought to get Rosa minutifolia--it's native to California (and Baja) and thorny as all get out. Can be persnickety too as it doesn't like too much water and will croak if kept too wet in summer. But it's so pretty with lovely mauvey pink flowers waving around on those bristley canes with fern like leaves. Plant likes to bloom after rain, so flowers can occur at almost any time of year. Try here for pics, http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.17261.1&tab=36

    I thought I read on your blog sometime back that you were interested in Acanthogilia gloriosa. The Rancho Santa Botanic Garden in Claremont, CA has a big one growing on the grounds. Armed to the teeth! With beooootiful white flowers. If one is a member, one can buy a packet of seeds from RSABG....... I have a bunch of pics of this plant if you want to see it.

    1. Thank you for the plant leads Tessie! I think one thorny rose is enough for me (I can't risk my reputation as a rose hater you know! And I've already got the Wingthorn rose)...but yes Acanthogilia gloriosa looks like something I'd fall for. I wonder how it would do up here in rainy Portland, Oregon?

  7. Thank you so much for sharing your passion. I'm a trainee garden designer creating a tropical garden for a sheltered UK plot. Your combination of plants are wonderful and have truly inspired me. Thank you so much. Nicky
